Having started his sea career in 1982, Sukerna Amirapu came ashore 8 years later. His post-sea career spans ship operations and management, business development and knowledge transfer across both hemispheres, mainly covering India, The Philippines, New Zealand and UAE.

He has been actively involved in maritime education since 1995, with particular emphasis on research involving the cultural dimension in knowledge transfer.

His involvement with the Australia, NZ and South Pacific Division of IMarEST as a vehicle to advance sea careers amongst the youth has generated considerable interest and success in the region.
